Royal Blog Tour – Featured Set – Peace Within

By | July 25, 2009

I am very excited to feature the stamp set Peace Within from the 2009-2010 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog.  This set will definitely be one of your favorites because it can lend itself to any occasion.  I've purposely left off any type of sentiment so that I can tailor to fit as I need it.


This card uses the new In-colors Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo.  The Designer Series Paper is Lovely Flowers.  It also includes all Stampin' Up! card stock and accessories.

Peace-Within-Card-2 This card showcases another image from the stamp Set Peace Within. 

I made it in blue tones to give it more of a restful feeling.

The card uses Tempting Turquoise card stock and the Flock Together Designer Series Paper.

The ribbon slide adds a little bit of interest.




In addition to the above cards, I made a small gift box.   For this project I used the main image (as used in the first card) and added the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper.  The Cottage Wall DSP is one of new beautiful patterns papers and is turning out to be a favorite of mine.

I also included the Top Note Die also available from the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog.
